When working with someone that really needs this, what better way to get
it to working and tested quickly then to target what they are using. It
is an embedded system with an established build environment for a what
may be a shipping product so they should not be forced to change their
environment to work with us on the driver team. In the end it should
work with any kernel but you have to start somewhere and that makes one
less variable for the company to use it.
As far as merging for inclusion to the mainline, yes these drivers will
be working with the bleeding edge.
